First beam splash events of 2009 have been recorded this evening in ATLAS (follow link to event displays). Woot!

This is where we were last year, just before the accident. Hopefully we can soon move onto colliding beams, initially at 450GeV per beam, allowing us to better calibrate the detector. If all goes well, we hope to get 3.5TeV per beam, and the start of real physics, either just before, or just after Christmas.

The first event appears on the screens in the ATLAS control room
